    075 (2402) brass parts

    A pair of 075 horns and phase plugs finished today.
    Very good work. This parts are not polished yet, only machined !
    They are copied from an original 075 driver with center holes for the dia center pins.

    Machine

    This parts are build on a 37 year old machine which works very well today.
    There is no loss in the slide carriage (?) of this old machine.
    The contour of horn and phase plug is gaged (?) (abtasten, abfahren) by an
    hydraulically controlled machine part. You have to build a steel blade contour of the horn before.

    My father is here today!

    He says brass, man you gonna polish those every day down here! Remember the navy spec brass railing I had in the old house? Have fun, he told me!

    But they look so nice!

    My father also said, if you coat them with the " Right " clearcoat you wont have any problems!

    6 yrs in the NAVY....

    I spent a lot of time with "Brasso" cleaning the brass pipes onboard the ship. It was a daily job to keep up with corrosion out in the Pacific ocean!

    They do look "COOL" though!

    Personally I love the look of well machined brass. If you polish them they will look more glitzy, but loose that beautiful machined look.

    As for protection against oxidation, I prefer wax. It is less effective than a polyurethane or a catalyzed clear coat, but they seem to all eventually fail. Wax is easily polished off and reapplied. The other clear coats are a real bear to strip when the time comes.

    Oxydation

    Yes Mr. Widget,

    I will try wax too (for cars). Idon`t think that a clear film paint is good !!
    The next parts i will try to polish them with scottsbritsh (?) and after that i polish (save) them with wax.

    you could always get them done with a clear powder coating. then you would almost never have to worry about corrosion on them

    Powder coating is a dry powder epoxy that is electro-statically applied to the metal and then melted on in an oven.

    I would avoid it for two reasons. First, it will five the metal a dipped in plastic look. Second, it will eventually still let corrosion in and then you have to strip off the epoxy.
